Hi All

I have a WiFi 1 Mg connection to the internet. I want to connect to my other pc about 250 yards/220 metres away. What equipment do I need please. I will be running XP which makes a lan fairly simple I think.?? Thanking you in advance for any replies.

Bogjumper.

First off, if this is not line-of-sight, you're probably going to have problems. Otherwise, I'd say at a minimum, I'd have a pair of directional antennas at each end. If required, you could also add the booster amplifier.


Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a couple of examples.

Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

Dear John Will

Many thanks for your advice. What do you think of Linksys equipment which seems to be strongest selling in UK and Ireland.

No problem, other makers have similar equipment, and it should offer similar benefits. :)
